One World Trade Center rises from the ashes
As the tenth anniversary of 9/11 draws near, here we bring you a round-up of psychology-related links to comment and resources (please do flag up further articles and resources via comments - thank you):

Pregnant 9/11 survivors transmitted trauma to their children. Mo Costandi for the Guardian's Neurophilosophy blog explains the likely epigenetic mechanism.

American Psychologist has a special issue on 9/11 with twelve wide-ranging articles exploring everything from lessons learned about post-trauma intervention to the social psychological impact of the attacks (summary of the articles).

An overview of that special issue from the New York Times.

The APA Monitor has a cover feature on our memories of 9/11.

Oliver Burkeman for The Guardian meets a young Manhattan clinical psychologist (with a specialism in traumawho qualified not long before 9/11.

The boy who thought 9/11 was his fault - a case study covered by the Digest in 2008. The case was subsequently discussed on BBC Radio 4's All in the Mind.
